    Good: AL Senator Introduces Bill that will legalize guns almost anywhere

    Click Here for Story

    An exerpt:
    BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Most companies prohibit employees from having a weapon anywhere on company property.

    A proposed bill in the legislature would allow guns on work property.

    The bill states that as long as a person has a permit to carry a concealed weapon, and it's locked away, they can have a gun in their private vehicle on work property.

    Democratic Senator Roger Bedford introduced the bill. He says he wants folks to be able to protect themselves in case something happens while traveling to and from work.

    Although the folks that work on military bases would still need to follow the military rules...no guns..period. But it's a good start!

    Wake up, bro. Why would the military need to protect itself? It's not like they're singled out as targets or anything.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    Hopefully it is passed/adopted.

    While it certainly isn't "almost anywhere" as the title suggests (although anti-gunners probably think so), definitely a good thing for all states to have. I never understood how an employer could punish you for something you have in your private conveyance.

    Indeed, Mr. Clinton saw to that a few years back.

    [Thanks, novarod. Is that a 307 or a 350?]

    I would be happy if all senior NCOs (let's say E7 and above) on base were authorized to carry. These soldiers tend to be career-oriented and have usually put in at least a decade of service by the time they achieve that rank. Plenty of time for the unstable to get weeded out.

    Good step, BUT not far enough! You should be able to carry ANYWHERE (with a very few exceptions). A property owners "rights" do NOT trump my right to life/liberty, and the right to self defense. In this example, who's to protect you while walking to/.from the parking lot, or while you are inside working?

    NONE of these restrictions make sense. A good start but overall still a

    Technically you are able to carry. You won't be arrested. You can, however, be fired for doing that, and there's no legal recourse for such an action.
